This easy Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders recipe is a simple flavorful recipe for juicy, crispy bacon covered chicken tenders baked in the oven. All you need is chicken, bacon and spices and you've got a delicious recipe that is Paleo, Gluten-free, and Whole30 compliant.


  • 1.5 pounds chicken breast, cut into tenders
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • a pinch of chili flakes
  • 8 strips of bacon, sliced in half longways


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, mix all of the seasoning/spices. Rub the seasoning on the chicken.
  • Wrap each chicken tender with the strips of bacon (that have been sliced in half longways). I ended up using 1.5 pieces of bacon per chicken tender. Try to tuck the ends of the bacon under each chicken tender.
  • Bake for 35 minutes, or until bacon is crispy. Broil for 1-2 minutes.
  • Note: At the 20 minute mark, use a paper towel to absorb some of the bacon fat and throw it away.
